Black Like You free pdf Herman Mashaba rose from humble beginnings to become one of South Africa's wealthiest and best-known entrepreneurs. His remarkable story begins in a small village in Gauteng, where we meet the cocky youngster who refused to settle for a future that offered nothing. Forced to drop out of university, the determined young man fought to establish the first black-owned haircare company in South Africa. Mashaba struggled every day of his life - against apartheid, with its demeaning laws, and against his competitors to grab market share for his business. In the process, Mashaba learnt lessons that few business schools teach today. This is a story of survival, and of determination in adversity. It is also a love story between Herman and Connie, his wife of 30 years, who embarked on this journey together. Mashaba shows the importance of having a vision, daring to dream it, and then making it happen. This inspiring book will leave you with the question: "If he did it, why can't I?"

About Herman Mashaba

"The experiences refl ected in this book are real and the manner in which he rose above the hurdles he faced is a reliable framework to selfactualisation and achievement." - Dr Thami Mazwai "After reading Black Like You ... I appeal to the government to save taxpayers money and stop writing more reports and instead study Herman Mashaba's autobiography." - Moeletsi Mbeki "A better role model, truer patriot and son of the soil I can hardly imagine. At a time when somewhat limited and even rapacious young business leaders descend on the trough of public tenders, our youth would do well to read Black Like You." - Justice Dikgang Moseneke "He tells sometimes uncomfortable truths and shares moments of inspiration which have led to his becoming one of this country's enduring role models. If this modest little book doesn't inspire you, nothing will!" - Jenny Crwys-Williams
